BAMMA 25: Heavyweight Championship Match Announced

BAMMA 25

Mark Godbeer, who was originally scheduled for the recent Rizin FF Grand Prix, will return to action in May at BAMMA 25, defending his heavyweight title against Stuart Austin.

The bout will take place as part of BAMMA 25: Champion vs. Champion from the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, England.

Godbeer and Austin are former training partners, as Austin is the current Lonsdale Heavyweight champion.

Recently, “The Hand Of” signed a new multi-fight contract with BAMMA. He is 10-2 overall in his career and won the belt in a bout vs. Paul Taylor.

“I’m really glad to be signing back with BAMMA after a lot of personal issues and financial difficulties,” he said. “BAMMA has really stepped up to help and look after me as a fighter and their heavyweight champion, so I can continue with the career I love without the stress and worry. The best of me is yet to come. I’m happy to be back in the game.”

Austin (10-2) claimed his Lonsdale belt with a victory over Tom Denham.
